Raspberry Pis galore!
The Raspberry Pi has gone from strength to strength and now it is in its 5th year and we are celebrating!
There will be:
- Sonic Pi - Make your Pi to a musical instrument with living code.
- Minecraft - Hone your Python skills by interacting with mcpi, a modable version packaged with the Pi.
- Get started with the Raspberry Pi - Bought a Pi and not sure how to use/set it up? Jams** are a great place to get started and ask questions about your ideas.
- Code Club - Now a natural addition as Code Club and the Raspberry Pi Foundation have joined forces, it seems only natural to have the crew here. Brush up on HTML and CSS here with Scratch and additional Python exercises.
- A demonstration of the WDLabs WD PiDrive Compute Centre and a big give-away in the free raffle. Don't forget to get a free raffle ticket!
Everything is free.
